The Sun and the Moon – Malika Hussain

Together they were a work of art

Special thanks to Malika Hussain for her excellent entry to the competition and Voices blog. Malika certainly has a talent for crafting verse, and we are certain you will appreciate this fantastic offering.

The Sun and the Moon

She was sun and he was the moon,

She snuck out to see him at noon,

So close but yet so far apart,

Together they were a work of art.

His tree was cut down, he was stuck in the past,

When she came into his life the pain didn’t last,

He was all alone with no light to guide him,

The torture tore him limb by limb.

Her rose was wilted, her heart was torn,

When he came into her life her heart was reborn,

She was stuck between these walls,

Trapped in her silent calls.

She was the sun and he was the moon,

Together they made a perfect tune,

They were worlds apart,

Yet they were together at heart.
